for something healthy but filling.

My husband (who is a picky eater) even loved it :)

It makes a big pot and I love eating it all week.

1 c water
1 can black beans, drained
1 can great northern beans, drained
1 can (7 oz) green chiles
2 c frozen corn


  1. In a large pot, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil.  Add zucchini and carrots.
  2. Add salt and pepper (to taste), 2 tsp minced garlic, 1 Tbsp chili powder and 1 tsp cumin. Cook veggies for 5-6 minutes.
  3. Add 1 can crushed tomatoes and 1 c water.
  4. Lastly add black beans, northern beans, green chiles and frozen corn.
